Honey Grove 1950’s Class Reunion Oct. 25, 2014
Excitement is building and plans are bring finalized for the Great Reunion of Honey Grove High
School Classes of the 1950’s. The date is Saturday, October 25; the time 10:00 a.m. and the location:
HG Elementary Cafeteria.
There are two requests for those planning to attend; bring addresses of fellow classmates that may
have moved and be thinking about who to select to lead the next reunion.
There are names of many students with whom we have lost contact. There will be a large poster
available to write in addresses and/or phone numbers of your friends whose information may have
slipped through the cracks. Better yet, you could bring with you a piece of paper or a file card with
names and addresses o classmates about whom you know-to give to Patsy Milton.
Doc’s Corner
Jadah Finney, daughter of
Rebecka Lewis and Kim
Finney of Honey Grove.
Jadah has been involved
with SADD for four years
and the mentor program
for one year. She has also
supported the Warriors by
cheering them on as mascot this year as well as
participating in basketball
and track. In addition,
Jadah has been an active
part of the Warrior band
for four years, participating in the 2014 State
Finalist
Sweepstakes.
Jadah’s future plans
include attending Prairie
View A & M University to
pursue a degree in nursing, and after graduating
college, marry the love of
her life, have two children
and live her life to the
fullest. Escorting her at
the pep rally will be senior
football
player
Johnathan Clark, and at
the game, her sister
Adrian Gardner.
Fourth nominee Raeli
Motley is the daughter of
Carla and Bobby Motley
of Honey Grove, Texas.
A very active five-year
member of FFA, Raeli
currently serves as FFA
president and has received
the Greenhand Degree in
2012 and the Top Hand
award in 2013. She has
also been a three-year
member of Beta Club,
serving as secretary this
year, SADD four years,
and Student Council one
year.
Her leadership
skills also include being
Senior Class secretary as
well. Definitely a Warrior
at heart, she has participated in the Warrior Band
five years, served as a
Varsity cheerleader this
year, and also participated
in Beta Club, serving as
secretary this year, SADD
four years, and Student
Council one year. Her
leadership skills also
include being Senior
Class secretary as well.
Definitely a Warrior at
heart, she has participated
in the Warrior Band five
years, served as a Varsity
cheerleader this year, and
Please, give some thought to who would be good leaders for the next Reunion. One person suggested that this idea of Co-Chairs is excellent because at our age, good health is not guaranteed. Another
mentioned that it is easier to do the job if you have participated in the past and know a bit about how
the machinery of planning and carrying out tasks works.
Whereas it might be possible to be the chief leader from a long distance, by and large workers have
been those in Fannin County and the Paris area. Though with easy travel now days, one or two from
the MetroPlex could do the top job. It is also highly recommended that leaders are chosen from the
Classes of 1955 through 1959.
So, come with addresses, ideas and anticipation of visiting with friends from our youth.

member of the K-9 unit, spoke about the use of dogs in war time
and how important they are in saving lives of our troops.
The exhibit will be kept open from 10:00 – 7:00 on this evening

The Fannindel Jr. & Sr. Beta Clubs joined forces
to help the Ladonia Chamber of Commerce at the
Fall Festival held on October 18th. Several members helped set up games and activities before the
Fall Festival began. The Beta Club members also
ran the games for the kids during the Fall Festival.
Some of the games included a slime bucket, dig-
ging for dinosaur’s bones, fishing, candy tree, toilet paper toss, put-put golf and many more activates through the day. Sixteen students volunteered on Saturday. The Fall Festival had a great
turn out and was a lot of fun. The Fannindel Jr.
and Sr. Beta Clubs are sponsored by Robert

DO THIS FIRST!
By: Reuben Trussell, Pecan Gap
Mary Jo and June were chatting one day. Mary Jo lived in a
retirement home. June asked,
“Mary Jo, how do like where
you live?
“Oh, I love it,”
answered Mary Jo, “there’s so
much to do, and no burdens of
cooking a cleaning.” “I’m not
sure I’d like it,” June said. “I
understand there are hardly any
men at these places.” “Oh,
indeed there are,” said Mary Jo.
“There’s Will Power, and
Charlie Horse, and (whispering)
you can even go to bed with
Arthur Itis. And, if you don’t
like them, there’s Ben Gay
An 85-year-old Honey Grove
widow went on a blind date with
a 90-year-old man. When she
returned to her daughter's house
later that night, she seemed
upset.
"What happened,
Mother?" the daughter asked. "I
had to slap his face three times!"
"You mean he got fresh?" "No,"
she answered. "I thought he was
dead!"
Do This First
Have you ever needed to talk
to someone. Perhaps you needed to ask an opinion … or, needed some encouragement … an
answer to a question … or, just
share a problem. Someone once
said that you can count your
“close” friends on the fingers of
one hand … and have a finger or
two left over. Who do you seek
out in those moments. It must
be someone to keep the conversation confidential. You need to
know that it will not be spread
to others.
My wife’s husband is a clergyman. Wow! That must make
him my “husband in law”!
Anyway, he burdens the same
person every time he needs
someone to talk to. He goes to
the Lord Jesus Christ. After all,
Romans 8:34, Hebrews 7:25
and John 17:11-25 are all scriptures that assure us of Jesus caring and praying for us. More
could be listed but these should
be sufficient.
In addition,
Romans 8:26 we learn that the
very Spirit of God and Christ,
the Holy Spirit, interceded in
prayer on our behalf.
Find a place … a place of
serenity and beauty. A place
with few distractions. A place
of quiet and calm peacefulness.
My wife’s husband has previously a local cemetery as one of
his favorite places. Every community has a cemetery and
many will fit the description
above. Pecan Gap, Ladonia,
Wolfe City, Honey Grove, along
with many country cemeteries
provide a prayer zone. The
early Christians would go to the
graves of family and church
leaders to pray.
Once more, my wife’s husband would have me mention
his favorite spots .. the first is
Commerce, in the midst of the
college campus.
It is on
Stonewall Street, about three
blocks west of Monroe Street.
Turn on to Bois d’Arc Street
from Culver Street (just west of
Brookshires) and you will come
straight to the little garden, next
Justice is Served
November 8
Sandy Barber
Rosa Gomez donated this
beautiful cross is made of wood
and metal. It will be auctioned
off at Justice Is Served on Nov 8
to benefit the abused and neglected children served by the
Fannin County Children’s
Center.
Live jazz, tasty food, fun
photo booth, fellowship and
more are in the plans for the
evening of Nov 8 for Justice Is
Served. Tickets and tables are
on sale now for this tenth annual event. Doors of the multi-purpose complex will open at 6 pm.
Proceeds from this “Black
and White Gala” will benefit the
Fannin County Children’s
Center. Guests are encouraged
to wear only black and/or white
in accordance with the event’s
theme.
Dinner will be prepared by
Bubba and Teri Daniel and
served up by local judges,
police chiefs and others in the
justice field. The James Dering
band will be back again this
year to play live jazz and entertain guests as they bid on a wide
selection of silent auction items
before the live auction begins.
Foster care alumni Jackie Davis
will share his inspiring story of
how he has beaten the odds,
with support from his CASA
volunteer.
Many wonderful auction
items have already been lined
up. Eugene and Becky Kegans
have donated four tickets and a
parking
pass
for
the
Thanksgiving day football game
between University of Texas
and TCU in Austin. Warrior
Tire is once again donating a 10
lap NASCAR driving school for
the auction. Diamond G Cedar
has given several beautiful
handcrafted pieces, including a
cedar trunk and bird house.
Many handcrafted and home
baked goods will also be in the
auction. Other items include
gift baskets, gift certificates and
other unique treasures. A preview list of auction items is
posted on the agency website
(www.fanninccc.org) and is
being updated frequently.
Texas Firearms Training
Academy will once again be
to Heritage House. A fountain,
benches, flowers, trees and a
walking path will greet you.
And, like Jesus withdrew to the
garden to pray, so can you.
One other spot just south of
Commerce and to the west of
Hwy 24 is Brigham Cemetery.
As you drive toward I-30 look
for the sign that reads,
“Brigham Cemetery” with an
arrow directing you.
Let’s meet the Lord in the
quiet place wherever you are.
Give Him your problems, your
requests and your needs. Give
Him the needs of others you are
praying for with the confidence
that He hears and He answers.
PRAYER
OF
SAINT
FRANCIS
Lord, make me an instrument
of Your peace. Where there is
hatred, let me sow love. Where
there is discord, union. Where
there is doubt, faith. Where
there is darkness, light. And
where there is sadness, joy.
O Master, grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be
understood, as to understand; to
be loved, as to love; for it is in
giving that we receive. It is in
pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it is in dying that we are
born to eternal life.
AN UNKNOWN PRAYER
I knelt to pray, but not for
long, I had too much to do,
Must hurry off and get to work,
For bills would soon be due,
All through the day, I had no
time To speak a word of cheer,
No time to speak of Christ to
friends, They'd laugh at me, I
feared.
No time...no time...too much
to do. That was my constant cry.
No time to give to those in need,
At last 'twas time to die. And
when before the Lord I came, I
stood with downcast eyes,
Within His hands He had a
book, It was the "Book of Life.”
God looked into His book and
said, “Your name I cannot find,
I once was going to write it
down, But never found the
time." Author unknown
And, Here would be a
Brother we need to pray for!
And, this just in from Wolfe
City. Three Senior couples eating together at Sunshine’s Café
and drinking hot tea. They were
all chatting and whatnot when
one of the men, trying to get a
chuckle, said to his wife, "Pass
the honey, honey!” Getting the
chuckle he expected, he carried
on. A moment later, the second
man said, "Pass the sugar,
sugar!" This got a bit of a bigger
laugh, so the third man,
although not quite as clever or
quick-witted as the other two,
decided to join in the fun. He
waited for the perfect opportunity, cleared his throat and then
confidently said, "Pass the tea,
bag!"
Dot’s Happy
Notes
The Sunday School lesson,
Defiant Faithfulness, concerning “Job” was taught by Bro.
Fritz Nelson. Job wanted to
know why God sometimes
chooses not to judge and punish
the wicked in this life for the
evil that they commit.
We fail to remember that
God remains sovereign and in
control of all things. God governs the world and bad times are
not hidden from Him. He will
return to judge the righteous
and the wicked.
The 11:00 a.m. services
began with the devotion led by
Juanita Brown, Wanda Fields,
Willie Price and Fritz Nelson.
Willie Price led an awesome
prayer. Izella Randall conducted the Praise and Worship services. Sister Elendora Denson led
the first choir selection, The
Lord Is Blessing Me.
Visitors included Sis.
Felicia Patterson. Other selections for the choir, Deborah
Gaffney singing lead on, If You
Can’t Help Me, Kenyan Cook,
Get Ready For Your Blessing
and lastly Fritz Nelson leading
on Heaven Is My Goal.
Rev. Martin Gant’s topic,
The Lord’s Supper, was taken
from 1st Cor. 11:23-32.
Focus: Jesus was wounded
for us and with His strips we are
healed.

Governor Perry Calls for Travel Ban
From Ebola Outbreak Countries
Gov. Rick Perry today announced the first recommendations issued by the Texas Task Force on
Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response.
Gov. Perry created the task force, headed by Dr.
Brett P. Giroir, earlier this month to assess the
state’s readiness and ability to respond to Ebola
and other infectious diseases.
Citing the need to stop Ebola before it comes
to the United States, Gov. Perry also called on
President Obama to enact an air travel ban from
countries affected by Ebola outbreak, a message
he conveyed directly to the President yesterday
during a telephone call.
“Air travel is how this disease crosses borders,
and it’s certainly how it got here to Texas,” said
Gov. Perry “Based on recent and ongoing developments, I believe it is the right policy to ban air
travel from countries that have been hit hardest by
the Ebola outbreak, provided there’s an exception
for aid workers to continue their important work
fighting this disease.”
Among the initial recommendations being
made by the task force to enhance our state’s pre-
Office of Governor Rick Perry
paredness and response to infectious disease are:
• Establishment of two Ebola Treatment Centers
in Texas;
• Establishment of specialized patient transport
teams;
• Expanded training of infectious disease protocols for health care workers;
• More testing labs for infectious disease; and
Gov. Rick Perry also announced the creation of
a state-of-the-art Ebola treatment and infectious
disease bio containment facility in North Texas.
Creation of such facilities was among the first recommendations made by the governor’s recently
named Texas Task Force on Infectious Disease
Preparedness and Response in order to better protect health care workers and the public from the
spread of pandemic diseases.
In addition to the North Texas facility, The
University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston
has also been designated an Ebola treatment and
infectious disease bio containment facility.
“In the event of another diagnosis this facility
will allow us to act quickly to limit the virus’
reach and give patients the care they need in an
environment where health care workers are specially trained and equipped to deal with the
unique requirements of this disease,” said Gov.
Perry.
Three of the region’s leading health care
providers, UT Southwestern Medical Center,
Methodist Hospital System and Parkland Hospital
System, will partner to set up and operate the
North Texas facility. The facility and equipment
are being provided by partner hospitals, and
staffing will be moved to the facility on an asneeded basis if the unit is activated.
• UT Southwestern Medical Center is contributing the expertise of physicians experienced
in infectious disease, critical care and other specialties, and some nursing professionals as
staffing requires.
• Methodist Health System is allowing the
use of an entire floor of the Methodist Campus for
Continuing Care in Richardson, including an ICU
wing well suited for the care of infectious disease
patients. They will provide some modifications
for the critical steps of decontamination, laboratory equipment and other dedicated personnel for IT
and biomedical support. Ebola and/or other infectious disease patients can be safely isolated
• Parkland Hospital has already begun transferring critical equipment such as personal protective equipment, IV fluids and laboratory supplies
to the Methodist facility. In addition, Parkland
will provide nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists and lab technicians.
“UT Southwestern is proud that its expert faculty physicians and nurses are ready to lead in
providing the very best care possible while safeguarding the safety of staff and the public. UTSW
is also committed to advancing the other important longer term goals identified by the
Governor’s Task Force,” said Dr. Daniel K.
Podolsky, President, UT Southwestern Medical
Center Building on the foundations that have
made it an academic medical center that is
respected worldwide, There is no mission greater
than serving the public good.”

Ramblings
By: Lena Shaw
Saturday October 18th was a
triple celebration for Ladonia,
and provided both educational
and entertaining programs for
all ages.
It began with a program by a
paleontologist who spoke of
fossils and how to identify
them, and then a jaunt out to
North Sulphur to search for the
fossils. North Sulphur is a treasure trove of artifacts and attracts
schools and colleges to search
for different kinds of fossils.
Chamber of Commerce vice
president Jan Cooper reported
that there were some good finds
in the search on Saturday.
The Fall Festival provided
entertainment for adults and
children alike. There was a pie
and chili cook-off and games for
all ages.
Following the events on the
square a movie was shown.
Many of these entertainments
were free.
Last, but not least, Cliff and
Rita Isaacs began their rides
through the “Haunted Forest”
which will be held on weekends, 17th and 18th, 24th and
25th and 31st through the
remainder of October, unless it
rains. This has been held for
several years now and has
received praise for a job well
done. The Fire Department also
has a Haunted House at the Fire
Station around Halloween and
the dates this year are October
25th, 26th and 31st.
Tom and Oma Hulsey of
Ladonia and good friends
Harold and Jo Nan Miller
attended the State Fair of Texas
October 16th. The State Fair
corny dogs are just as good as
they are said to be. And of
course, who doesn’t enjoy being
greeted by Big Tex? Tom, Oma
and Jo Nan Mills Miller are
graduates of LHS and Harold
Miller is a graduate of HGHS.
Harold and Jo Nan plan to
attend the Honey Grove school
reunion.
Freddie and Janie Hulsey of
Wylie returned Sunday October
12th from a twelve state, twelve
day road trip through the great
southwest. They shared pictures
of many of the places they visited on Facebook.
The TAMUC Lion Football
team has done well in play this
season and won their game
Saturday night over West Texas
A & M 48 – 21, giving them a
share of the Lone Star
Conference title.
Good news, young Triston
Wynne, seven year old grandson
of Kim Corbin, who had been
missing for several days, has
been found and is safely home.
Gail Levey flew to the
wedding of her son Niles, and
his bride during the week end
and had a wonderful time. She
learned to love her beautiful
daughter-in-law and her parents.
Jacky and June Drawbond
watched after her place while
she was gone.
Grandparents love to attend
activities in which their family
participates. Saturday afternoon
Rickey and Martha Crews of
Pecan Gap were in Commerce
to see their precious granddaughter as she enjoyed cheerleader camp. Allyson also plays
soccer.
Chris Crumb drove in from
San Marcos to attend the wedding of his brother, Casey in
Plano. Casey is in the Marine
Corps and will soon be
deployed to the South Pacific.
Chris was always a faithful
member of First Baptist Church
and he and his mother, Audie
were present for worship services Sunday morning. It was good
to see them and also Donna
Davenport and her son Jarrod
and his family.
Joseph Hoover and his wife
are visiting his parents Thomas
and Nancy Hoover and Joseph
also attended worship service at
First Baptist with them.
We wish God speed to Ollie
Smith who has joined the army
and will be stationed in
Missouri.
Along with the good news
there is always news that we
don’t want to hear. Our sympathy goes out to Gary Hobbs of
Cooper (Delta Funeral Home)
and family in the loss of his
lovely wife, who lost her battle
with cancer last weekend. This
weekend a tender hearted, animal loving person, Sharon
Bannister, also lost her battle
with cancer and passed away at
home, the Wild Rose Ranch.
Condolences also go out to John
Banister and his two daughters,
Bethany and Hannah Kate, in
her passing. She will be missed
by many.
Beddie Maxwell lost her
sister and sympathy is extended
to her and the family.
Scott Trussell, son of Brother
Rueben Trussell of Pecan Gap is
seriously ill and needs our
cxvtÇ ZtÑ axãá
prayers.
Since most of us love animals and grieve for them when
they leave us, we will remember
the Lawhon family in Honey
Grove who lost a much loved
older horse, Smokey Joe, who
died last week.
A long time companion, a
dog, of the Hill family on 2990
was run over and killed.
There are so many who have
family members who are critically ill, those who have lost
loved ones, and those with pain
and problems we don’t know
about, it would behoove us to
‘pray without ceasing.’
Sadly, Monday morning
October 20th we learned on
Facebook that Clint Collard, ’77
graduate of FHS, has passed
away. Our deepest sympathy
goes out to the family of this
young man.
Oh, and by the way, I have a
new great grandanimal, a hedge
hog, who belongs to my great
granddaughter Madison Shaw.
He is a fluffy little thing.
Birthday greetings on Oct
24th to Amy Prado, David
Duncan, Donnie Savage, Jr.,

how cheaply you can do just that!
5 DAY CRUISES FROM
$289 PER PERSON...
By Nelda Campbell
Reminder:
Saturday,
November 1, is the annual
United Methodist Church Lord's
Acre Luncheon, from 11:30 –
1:00 at the Pecan Gap
Community Center. Everyone
is welcome to come and enjoy
all the delicious food.
Commissioner Pct. 3, Lloyd
Vandegriff, would like the folks
in this area to know that the
reason that folks cannot bring
their tree limbs to the county
barn to be burned is: the lot that
had previously been used for the
burn pile does not belong to the
County, but is owned by Mr.
Barry Sandlin and he has
requested that the lot be cleared
of all the rubbish.
Visiting Jerry and Helen Park
on Thursday was Jerry's sister
Judy Gibbs from Arkansas.
Friday, they all went to visit
and spend the night with another sister Bitsy Wringle in
Bedford. On Sunday, they
attended the 50th Wedding
Anniversary Celebration for a
cousin and wife, Bob and
Jeanine Park. The Anniversary
Celebration took place at the
home of a great cousin, Darrell
Park. They all had a great time.
Ronnie and Nan Beeler were
delighted to host Ronnie's Viet
Nam buddy, Reggie Langford
and his wife Marilyn, from Port
Clinton, Ohio, over these last
two weeks. They didn't have
the necessary hook ups for their
big RV bus here at the Beeler
house, but they were able to stay
at Cooper Lake State Park and
drive back and forth in their
towed car. Ronnie and Reggie
served in the Army together in
Pleiku, Viet Nam, in helicopter
maintenance, and they were
injured at the same time in the
Camp Holloway attack of 1965,
the first attack on an American
base by the Viet Cong in the
Viet Nam War. After his discharge from the Army, Reggie
spent over 30 years as a Park
Ranger on the islands of Lake
Erie near Port Clinton. They
became reacquainted in 1985
when he contacted Ronnie, and
he has visited several times over
the years. We're still looking for
his cap that he lost while helping Ronnie bale hay in 1985!
We think that it's gone for good
now.
In addition, Ronnie and
Nan's weanling (2014) filly,
CMF Gold in My Brandy, won
her halter futurity class at the
Hunt County Horseman's
Association show 10-11-14, and
at the Red River Horse Club
show and futurities 10-18-14
she won two weanling halter
futurities and was Reserve
Grand Champion Mare overall!
Visiting Nelda Campbell
Thursday and Thursday night
were sister-in-law Vernell
Harbin and niece Pam Lewis
from Canyon, Texas.
On
Friday, they all went to the
home of Vernell's son David
Ready for a Vacation?

and
Libby
Harbin
in
Colleyville. They spent the the
weekend with them and enjoyed
having dinner at South Lake
Town Square and also was able
to visit the App store where
Nelda purchased an I-Pad (quite

One of the homes that they

Letter to the Editor
On October 11, 2014 we had the honor to attend the Texas Viet
Nam War Heroes Exhibit at the Bertha Voyer Memorial Library. It
was so wonderful to know all of you cared enough to recognize our
Viet Nam Veterans, those who are living and those who gave their
lives for our country.
My brother, Philip Wooten lost his life in Viet Nam on May 12th
1968 at the age of 28. He was killed on Mother’s Day. I was a sophomore in High School when this tragedy occurred, but I will never
forget the evening the two chaplains showed up to tell us the terrible news.
But we really appreciate all the work all of you did to get this
brought to Honey Grove. May God bless all of you.
Sincerely Yours,
James & Linda (Wooten) Eilers
